About Gina's Picks - Sept. 2021
While there are some similarities to an official Eureka Crystal Beads Collection, think of this monthly picks concept as a mini collection, of sorts, in which I select some of my favorite products to highlight for the month, from ECB, which are curated around a monthly theme. These monthly picks will happen on the months where a ECB collection is not being released, and will bridge the gap between those highly anticipated events.
This month’s theme is called Canyon Falls, which features hues of earthy metallics and pops of turquoise. Three follow-up tutorials will be coming, based on the products you’ll see in the video.
